Food and drink
Like many of the central restaurants it stays open during the day, with the café serving lighter meals, drinks and coffees on the pavement. The food takes traditional Italian favourites and moves them up to new levels, such as a mouth-watering black risotto with baby squid. There are special pre- and post-opera menus on performance nights.
Rich red chairs add warmth to the cool elegance of the room with its grey walls, wood floors, crisp white cloths and regimented tables.
Right next to La Scala Opera House.
Expect to pay around 70–80 euros for three courses without wine.
